From Creative Computing, 1984: The NCR Decision Mate V is an interesting entry in the world of business-oriented personal computers. In its normal configuration, it is furnished with an 8-bit Z80A microprocessor. However, an optional plug-in module is available that converts the machine into a dual 8/16-bit processor with the capability of running both CP/M-86 and MS-DOS. If this option is ordered with the basic machine, it is installed internally. We think this is the configuration that will...
